People.

The King of Seoul: After a week of intense pressure, Canada’s Ben Johnson stunned his opponents and the world last Saturday at the Seoul Olympics. Exploding from the starting block, Johnson blazed to a gold medal and a new world record of 9.79 seconds in the 100-m dash. Otherwise, Canada’s medal count was disappointing as the Soviet Union and East Germany dominated the first week of competition.

Health: Radon gas scare leaves Ottawa unruffled.

Ethics: Police seek a Nova Scotian who may have knowingly spread AIDS.

Books: The fate of Napoleon III sounds a warning to modern politicians.

Justice: Unfounded allegations of child abuse are becoming an issue in custody battles.

Nature: Killer bees advance on the United States.

Special Report: Margaret Atwood is in the prime of her literary career. Since the publication of her 1985 novel, The Handmaid’s Tale, she has become an international celebrity and she leads the Canadian invasion of foreign markets. Her new novel, Cat’s Eye, is part of an impressive lineup of domestic fiction this fall.

Films: Two documentaries portray the irrevocable consequences of human error; Sigourney Weaver’s African crusade.

Allan Fotheringham’s Column.
